Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Rock Church and The Esplanadi Park. Get outdoors at Aurinkolahti Beach and Nuuksio National Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa) and Kokonniemi (in Porvoo). And it doesn't end there: meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, make a trip to Senate Square, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
